Re: Connection of PS3
You will have to connect it to the TV using the composite cable to change the settings. This is the cable with yellow red and white connectors. Connect it to one of the composite inputs on the TV. You should be able to leave to HDMI connected at the same time so that once you make the change, you can change to the HDMI input and see if it works.

Use the optical cord. And connect it to the optical connection behind the TV. You will see a red glowing light at the connection on the TV. Go this route, this connection will work for all your TV viewing, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, DVR, DVD, Satellite, cable or air, and if you still have a VHS.

Since you did not mention HDMI 2, I assume you have that connected to something else, and that is working properly. The following procedure is based on that assumption.
First, turn off everything connected to the set, and the TV itself. Disconnect the HDMI cable from whatever is going to HDMI 2 (leave the TV end alone for now) and connect it to the PS3. If the PS3 shows up on the TV, the problem is most likely a bad cable. To verify, turn off the PS3 and the TV, then move the known good HDMI cable to either HDMI 1 or 3. If the PS3 works on those also, the HDMI cable you had originally connected to the PS3 is defective. I know there are some bad ones out there; there is at least one lot with a right-angle connector on one end and a straight connector on the other that has a very high failure rate.
If the PS3 does not work with a known good cable to HDMI 2, then the PS3 has a problem. Try using a component (RGB) or composite (yellow end) connection to narrow down what the issue is.
If HDMI 1 and 3 do not work with a known good cable or any input source (DVR or cable box), then the HDMI switching circuit inside the TV is defective. Since the set is "new" that would be a warranty issue.
You have to find out what is causing the problem, The TV, The PS3 or the cable. Most likely its a bad connection, or incorrect settings less likely is a bad digital board in your TV. Connect the PS3 to another TV, if the issue is gone the problum is with your TV, first I would try all the resoultion options in the TV menu and the PS3, if that does not work I would still try another HDMI cable if it still is not working connect another HDMI device to the TV if it also is not working the problem is with your TV
Ur tv some how causes HDMI 1 and 2 port hubs link together so changes back and fourth 1 or 2 HDMI hubs will not a difference.Ur tv have 4 HDMI hub ports wright?Tries not to used HDMI hub ports as like HDMI ports like 1,2,3,4 to as in sequences.Tries used like 1 and 4,2 and 4,3 and 1 as skips sequences might work for ur tv.Tries to hook up the PS3 system as the old format hook up same hook as PS2 format like used the PS station old RCA AV cable hook up.Then that should not causes conflict at all because now tv have two difference kind of format hook up.
That HDMI connection hub port it some how got short and it dead.Tries other HDMI connections hubs.If all are like that they are all dead.All HDMI hubs ports connections are link together.If one dies usually all HDMI hubs dies together.Than ur tv Tuner signal board will not have anymore HDMI hubs functions connections at all,none of the HDMI hubs will work again ever.Have happen to mine Samung tv,so now i have to stop using HDMI hubs all together.
Plug your ps3 to the tv with a HDMI cable. go to Setting > Display setup on your ps3> Look for output/connection type. Select HDMI cable> Select the highest resolution your tv has 1080p or 720p. There you get the best picture for playing your ps3 gaming.
you have to re sync your playstation when you go from HDMI to regular wires.
after you connect ps3 to tv. hold down the power buttondown on the ps3 for like 5 seconds (1 beep then another ),
after you hear a second beep the ps3 automoatically adjusts itself to whatever it's connected to.
